カメラマン : Guillaume Catella




Rarely Tokyo will have been as agitated. After Sonata Arctica, Omnium Gatherum, Nile and many others the days before, Aborted, System Divide, Devour the Martyr and 5 other bands are invited by the Verlay brothers and Chaotic Tapestry to stir up the Japanese capital. It’s the underground small venue of the “Wild Side” in Shinjuku which hosts the hostilities, not without difficulty, as the crowd can barely fit in the place, which quickly gets very hot, confering an infernal and intimist ambience. The event is incidentally named “Valentine Smasher” as we are on February 14th on Valentine Day.




It’s, again, the occasion for us to complement the live of a series of interviews with Sven and Ken from Aborted, showing their wild and crazy nature, and then with Miri Milman accompanied by her husband Sven (again), representing this time System Divide.
Besides our two head of the bill, the show also features Devour the Martyr, Empire, Ogre, Serenity in Murder, Gotsu Totsu Kotsu and Hemorroid Carnage, the overall for a very decent price, only half of Nile only 2 days before.





Ogre

As I missed the beginning of the show and the first bands, I enter the hall as Ogre gets on stage. Already reviewed in these pages with Serenity in Murder when Deals Death came to Japan with Bloodshot Dawn (at the origin of Chaotic Tapestry), Ogre, formed in 1994, plays death-thrash metal inspired by war and satanic imagery, and led by the experienced Sayaki. Unfortunately, the quartet is rapidly subject to problems and they have to restart 3 times on one song before giving it up. As they couldn’t do properly the sound checks, Sayaki doesn’t hear anything and has difficulties playing in these conditions, apologizing to the benevolent and understanding crowd, which supports the band with respect.

System Divide

After a short break, the 6 members of System Divide quickly climb on the narrow stage, which has difficulties to contain a band that turbulent ! Entirely internationalized, the band is formed of Miri Milman, the Isreali singer, Sven De Caluwé from Aborted, as well as Mike, Mendel, Steve and Andrei, all from diverse horizons. Recently founded in 2008, System Divide officiates in a Melodic Death Metal genre allying two types of vocals which union was unlikely : a melodic female voice and brutal and hissing growls, the overall being supported by a technical play of guitars and devastating drums.
Miri’s clear voice is well toned and wins our hearts while Sven’s voice is fierce and enraged. While the first holds the mic and encourages the crowd with softness, the second steers his crew with an iron hand.
The young band, already well experimented, offers us an excellent performance, intense and musically exhilarating.

Aborted

Now is the turn for Aborted, reference in terms of brutal death metal, to confront the audience and get on the boards of the Wild Side, now overheated. As soon as they reach the stage, the band discharges its rage and the members common to Aborted and System Divide succeed in their endurance test of following on two sets in a row. The crow is now very dense, but the mosh in its center gives some air, though compacting even more the first lines (which is even better for the few crowd surfers). A small wall of death will even be instigated by the band leader.
The lights are dimmed, and Sven is so agitated that we can barely follow him with our eyes, showing to everyone his unleashed madness.




To sum up, Chaotic Tapestry Japan prepared us an excellent evening allying brutality and madness, showering the audience more than hoped for, to celebrate with ferocity this Valentine Day. I regret not having seen the first bands, particularly Serenity in Murder, but the future occasions will be numerous, and without doubt you won’t want to miss them either.
